Dating the younger (18-25) girlsPage 1 of 2    (1, 2)
Hi, my situation is fairly unique.

I've never had a girlfriend before and only the end of last year decided to give online dating a go.

So although I'm not 30 yet, I will be in a couple of years time and I really want to experience some younger women before I get too old.

I'm wondering if anyone has experience of how to appeal to the younger 18-25 year olds as an older gentleman (who isn't rich by the way!).

I find women in this age group to be at their peak attractiveness and I would feel sad if I lived my live having only experienced women 30+, who are not only physically older but also have a lot more "baggage" than I do, having never been in a relationship before!

Let me know what you think, thanks!

Women are individuals just like all people. One younger person is going to be different than the next. My last girlfriend was 23 when we met (at 36), and I wouldn't compare her to any of the other younger women I've dated in the past. Young people can have baggage, older people can be baggage free, so on and so forth.

Thirty isn't old, BTW, at the least it's on the young side of middle aged...

Women 18-25 are in the prime of their dating life. Women start their dating life at the top, whereas men start theirs on the bottom. As the old saying goes, women age like milk whereas men age like wine. Most women that age bracket are mainly out to have fun, party, be trendy, and are mainly into the bad boys and whatnot. Want to attract young hot women you can't be...boring. That's really it. Nothing women in that age bracket hates more than someone they deem boring. A guy working a simple 9-5 job in a cubical is deemed boring in most of their eyes. Yes, there are some exceptions to the rule as certain factors may apply like whether she's unattractive, overweight, or had kids at an early age.

However, there are another sector of those women who go for older guys because older guys have money. It's not uncommon for women in their 20s to be dating a man in their 40s if the man has a lot of money or is stable. Reality of it is, many of these younger women are very attractive, but they also cause a ish ton of problems. What looks good may not always be good.

An old saying that you made up? hahaha Never heard that one before.

Both milk and wine get sour, go 'off' eventually. Try again, rod1919us<<<

OP posted then went poof
He must of been swooped up.
Funny how some see age so
differently. Old at 30 yet so
young at 50

I think finding love is personal,
not based on age.

From what I have seen, many younger women that use OLD tend to go after relatively older men. For example, a 25 year old woman having an age range of 24-35. A part of it might be perceived more maturity from older men. Another possible reason is they might think older men are more established in their careers and more financially stable.

south_city, I have noticed that too but I have also noticed that a lot of the women my age are looking for men between twenty something and 40. I'm 40. It really sucks when a woman age 38 or 39 is attractive in every way and only looking for younger.

Most gals don't put an age range on their profile, but ones who do can be looking for older guys (you're 28) -- or more often nowadays VS yesteryear, liking guys older but not much more than 4-5 years older, which is the norm.

One thing you don't realize is that 18-21 isn't necessarily peak attractiveness if you're looking to ride off in the sunset. They can get Bigger. Sure, so can gals 26-29, but if they have a slender body, that has more stock for the future than a gal @18-21. As a baseball coach always said -- look at her mother for the real LTR test. For fooling around? Yeah. But there's plenty of gals of any age for that, but yes, higher % 18-25. Hell, 18-20 actually if we wanted to get technical.

Even tho ya disappeared -- and you're looking for a GF... don't be picky, but don't be LTR-hunting. Go Date hunting, take it casual at first. You have never hit a "home run" as far as relationships between you and a gal are, but start getting on base first. And as far as settling down is concerned? Don't go too young. BIG difference between 18-21 and 28. Having a year past college under their belt is best, as far as that's concerned (23-24+), but as I said -- feel it all out, don't be picky on that until you get just-dating under your belt and are deciding on going steady.

Many women are not ready to fall in love until they are 26 - 27.

It's alright guys, I'm baaaaaaaaaaack!

I just want to have some fun, I don't want to ever settle down.

I'm not ready to be a 30 something.

I had no female contact throughout my teens or 20s.

I don't want to miss out on the stages, it doesn't feel quite fair to me.

You do not have to ever settle down with one woman . That would be a dumb thing to do.

You're 28 -- so, basically, you never had any female contact ever. :)

I don't want to miss out on the stages, it doesn't feel quite fair to me.

You already missed out, thru junior high, high school, and college. You're finishing up the 2nd of 5 stages IMO, when in adulthood. Many get married at the end of your stage (*), or the next one.
- Young adult (18-24), where it's penis-pumping-for-fun + heart-breaking breakups
* Post-college (25-30), where it's not as exciting anymore, but people are more in Relationship mode
- Marriage/Baby Hunting (31-37), where a gal's trying to get fertilized if she hasn't before; many want to get married
- Divorced/Middle-Aged (38-49), too-late to have a baby, post-divorce frisky times, pretty fun (MILF resevoir)
- Old (50+), settling in and folks of this age don't go "out" too much; not as active out there, thus harder to find

Wow, norwegianguy456, that is incredibly depressing!

I am not a virgin though, I have been with 12 prostitutes from the age of 25.

But they are expensive and normally old (35 is the youngest I've been with).

It just saddens me that I've never had the delights of a young girl.

I am probably a misogynist now due to my experiences anyway

You get older, they just stay the same age

If you're under 30 and having trouble attracting women under 30, then that identifies a problem itself, but I digress...

I couldn't imagine DATING a woman 18-25. Having sex with her, sure, but dating? No. Way too much immaturity at that age range. A lot of women over 30 are still immature****carousel riders too these days because their brains have been warped by mass media making them think their peak years are eternal (they're absolutely NOT eternal, btw) but for the ones who have matured and are done with the carousel there is still all the torn tickets left over from all the rides: that's called baggage and most women over 30 will have a ton, so that's a big downside.

There is nothing like an over 30-something woman with 3 kids by three different baby daddies who believes she's entitled to a 6'2 Idris Elba with bags of money waiting in his hands, but POF serves up a ton of them daily.
